Police charged two people after seizing a variety of drugs in the 2000 block of Retallack Street.
The Regina Police Service (RPS) stated the incident occurred on Monday morning, Aug. 8, 2022 at 5:05 a.m., after a member of the Canine Unit noticed what appeared to unusual behaviour involving a vehicle circling the 2000 block of Retallack Street and a male passenger.
“The officer conducted a traffic stop and found the male was wanted on warrants and also had a 24 hour curfew,” RPS stated in a release. “When other police units arrived to assist, the male passenger was arrested. Police located a quantity of cocaine and fentanyl in a holder in the passenger door.”
This drug discovery led to the arrest of the driver and a search of the vehicle, which yielded quantities of cocaine, fentanyl, hydromorphone, three cellphones, a quantity of cash, and paraphernalia associated to drug trafficking.
Police said a search of the driver also found a small quantity of methamphetamine and both the driver and passenger were jointly charged.
Regina residents, 44-year-old James Albert Cecil Seal and 37-year-old Trisha Dawn Sitter, are jointly charged with four counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking and possession of the proceeds of property obtained by crime under $5,000.
Police also charged Seal with breach of probation and breach of recognizance. The two accused persons made their first court appearances on these charges in Provincial Court at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 8, 2022.
